Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 109399
Epiphany doesn't pick up Mozilla plugins
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:33 EST
Description of problem:
When installing web browser plugins such as Flash, the appropriate
directory in FC1 is /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.1/plugins. Unfortunately, the
Epiphany web browser doesn't immediately have access to those plugins.
As documented in the Epiphany FAQ, the fix is to set MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH
to point to the proper directory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download Flash from http://www.flash.com/
2. Install it
3. Run Mozilla and see Flash work; run Epiphany and see Flash not work.
I'm not sure where MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH should be set; on my system, I
wanted to be sure it was set correctly for all users, so I added
Plugins should be installed in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Epiphany and
Mozilla both look there.
